Babies First Souffle!

My after daydream at work about what I was going to make for dinner started out innocently and lazily enough. Breakfast for dinner it is! But of course as the day grew on, so did my appetite… and my gumption! I decided it was time to tackle the dreaded, scary, all-to-impossible SOUFFLE! I knew I wanted to make a savory version, so I looked up a 3 cheese recipe. Since most of the cheese souffles were served as brunch, I decided I could still stick with my original idea of having breakfast for dinner! I sliced some italian bread I had left over from meals gone by and toasted it in the oven. After it was lightly toasted, I rubbed one side with a garlic clove and the other side with a fist full of basil. I topped it off with thinly sliced prosciutto. The crunchy bread was a perfect companion to the light, fluffy, creamy, rich souffle! I also paired it with some mixed greens tossed in lemon juice and a blood orange infused olive oil. The citrus cleansed your palette of the cream from the souffle! The salad and bread were easy enough, so no recipe is required, and since it was my first souffle, I wont post the recipe until I have found the perfect one! By the way, for those who are still scared of the souffle, this entire dinner took about 45 minutes to complete from start to finish! Not bad, not bad at all!
